High-Brow Art Meets Low-Brow Humor


Blue Palms is a raucous series about a group of eccentric artists living in a dilapidated Hollywood apartment complex. It’s like a demented “Three’s Company” dedicated to those who never gave up on their dreams, even after their dreams gave up on them.

When Buddy Feckelson, a once promising cartoonist, falls on hard times, he’s forced to rent out his one-bedroom apartment and sleep in the living room.  When things get worse, he begins renting out floor space.

His two roommates are Ginny, an out-of-work actress who moonlights as a princess at children’s parties, currently on suspension for sleeping with one of the dads, and Mudmoosh, a failed Albanian rocker who spent his fortune on hair-loss treatments.

The series traces the outlandish antics of these three outsider artists as they toil desperately for fame, success and critical acceptance.

What crisis will befall them next? What absurd new scheme will they hatch to “be discovered”?  What could possibly go wrong?

We think the world needs a story that celebrates the pig-headed perseverance and nobel artistic spirit evident in so many of us, despite the grueling challenges we face daily.

This fine graphic novel is brought to you by Buddy Hickerson (National Lamptoon), Hunter Adams (Dig Two Graves), and executive produced by Kim Sherrell.

Dig Two Graves — Netflix

Hunter Adams’s “Dig Two Graves” is that rare chiller conjuring eeriness and dread without defaulting to abundant gore or flagrant nudity. While its elements — small-town police corruption; supernatural powers in an Old World brood (here, Gypsies); an adolescent girl’s confrontation with a traumatic past — are familiar, it bears a haunting ambience as agreeable as it is ephemeral. Mr. Adams is clearly skilled with story structure, cinematography and his actors. (continue at New York Times)

“And details are definitely the movie’s strongest suit. What makes “Dig Two Graves” an astonishing accomplishment for a low-budget indie is the exceptional production value it achieves from deceptively simple shots, props, sounds, and setpieces likely to go unnoticed by many.” continue reading >> Culture Crypt
